A full programme of monthly two-three hour walks will run in 2014, on the first Thursday of each month. Each walk has been mapped out using every station between Grange and Millom. The walks are about five miles, taking up to three hours and can be over rough ground and occasionally very wet underfoot. Most walks end in the vicinity of an agreeable place to eat and drink. New walkers will be made very welcome.

The first named will be the station where the walk begins, the last named where it ends. Assuming the timetable does not change for 2014, the walk start time coincides with the arrival of the 10.10 train from Barrow. On 5 June, the walk will begin from Barrow station at 10.10. Trains set off from Barrow in both directions within a minute (or two) of 10.10am.
A printable version of the 2014 programme will be available soon. Any
